Both options have their advantages.

What kind of hurricane shutters are available?
How do hurricane shutters work?
Hurricane shutters protect the “envelope” of your home. In other words, they protect any glass opening that may be at risk of damage by flying debris. Hurricane shutters are installed or put on before a storm happens.
When do I need to use hurricane shutters?
All new construction and pre-existing homes need some form of hurricane protection. Any “glass” opening on a home has the potential to break during a storm. This allows wind and rain to enter the building. These are the openings that should be protected. Other uses would be to enclose Lanais so that they are protected from the elements.
When do you put up storm shutters?
Typically, it depends on if you are a full-time or seasonal resident. In general, installing shutters a few days in advance of a storm is sufficient. Seasonal residents many times will close or install their shutters at the start of hurricane season in June. Then they take them down in November. Some of our shutters like Accordions and Roll-Downs only take a few minutes to use.
